Why does God show me mercy?

Psalm 5:7-8Lead me in the right path, O Lord, or my enemies will conquer me . . . show me which way to turn.

God shows mercy to guide us along the right path for our life and to keep our enemies from defeating us. We could never deserve to enter God’s presence or receive his help, but because of his love and mercy, he offers these blessings just the same.

Psalm 31:7I am overcome with joy because of your unfailing love . . .

Psalm 59:16I will shout with joy each morning because of your unfailing love.

God shows mercy to give us joy.

Psalm 86:15But you, O Lord, are a merciful and gracious God, slow to get angry, full of unfailing love and truth.

God shows mercy to demonstrate his deep and unfailing love for us.
